Year 12 Japanese Winter Workshop
First, each student presented their discussion topics then some exam tips by Ms White, followed by lots of speaking practice. After a full morning's work students were rewarded with an exciting do-it-yourself "Okonomiyaki" lunch. The workshop ended at 4:30. Here are some photos from the day.
International Student Program Homestay
We provide homestay to these students while they are enrolled at the school. Length of stay can vary from one to three years. Study Abroad students enrol at Strathmore Secondary College for 3 to 12 months. As of January 2023, students pay $320 per week for accommodation and 3 meals a day. This money does not have to be declared on a tax return as it is considered “reimbursement” not income.
We are looking for families that can provide a safe, comfortable and caring environment whilst the students are studying at Strathmore.
If you are interested in becoming a Homestay family please contact Jan Maas, Homestay Coordinator on 0414 863 047 or Cathy Di Battista, International Student Manager, on 0417 301 835 to discuss further.
These thirteen stories were selected by teachers to represent the best responses generated by students as part of a Term 1 unit of study. The stories explore the themes of identity, belonging, generational differences, and prejudice.
The English faculty is awarding two Year 10 students for their participation in the creative response:
Excellence award: Cady Jacobson (Stirling)Perseverance award: Keshiya De Alwis Jayasinghe (Napier)
Both students will receive a $30 Readings book store voucher.
Well done to both of these students, and to all that contributed to the anthology. Click the link below to download.

Dear Parents and Guardians
Whenever your child is absent from classes, an Attendance note should be entered on Compass.Recording student attendance is required by the Department of Education for all students.An Attendance note should also be entered if a student will leave school during the day. By adding an Attendance note in advance, school staff can confirm the student has permission to leave the classroom.
Students should always sign out at the General Office, prior to leaving the school grounds.If your child will be away for an extended period, or you wish to discuss their wellbeing or academic progress, you can email the relevant team Coordinator via the Student Teams tab on the school website.
The school website provides a link to a detailed Compass Guide for parents and families under the Parent Portal tab.
Instructions for entering an Attendance Note are included. If you require assistance, please Contact the college.
We recommend using a web browser rather than the Compass phone app, for a detailed view of Attendance information for your child.
Any unexplained absences will be detailed under the Attendance tab.
